Arcare Kanwal’s favourite music entertainer, Charlie put on a special concert in Darling (Dementia Unit) which other clients attended too.
Charlie puts on a magnificent show covering the likes of Elvis, Slim Dusty, Doris Day and more. When he sings everyone starts tapping their hands, clicking their fingers, moving their feet and joining in on their favourite songs.
This time Charlie brought with him instruments for the clients to play like, maracas and tambourines which brought a smile to everyone’s face.
Although there is no dancefloor in Darling it did not stop everyone from getting up and having a dance. The lifestyle team took those in wheelchairs for a spin around the makeshift dance floor. No one could sit still.
The afternoon was filled with smiles, laughter and most of all fun! Everyone enjoyed themselves and enjoyed sharing their love for music with everyone.
